with s52 cams, a m50 manifold, and software, i dont think a s50 would be too much of an upgrade.

Plus needing to rewire my OBD2 car to run on OBD1 is definatly not worth the few HP.

PM me what you're gonna be selling though

flav,
honestly, the people on here who have cars that are worth showing off dont make threads about them. My front windshield even has a crack in it. Its nice to hear other people's opinons, if you do a search on my old threads, people gave me advice, and in certain cases i took it, and was thrilled about it.

pedro - my CF hood was painted black anyway.

From quickly reading through this thread I think you've already got all of the basics covered: you have most of the engine, suspension, transmission and appearance modifications you can get within your criteria already on your car.

That means it's time to take care of the details that will add huge amounts of cool factor to your car. These were all factory options in Europe only, which makes them that much cooler:
  • Full Amaretta and cloth vader interior - take it to the next level
  • Powered rear vent windows - these are a must as nobody has them
  • Red BMW Motorsport seatbelts - rare as hell and very cool
  • Underhood lamp - nice detail that comes in handy
  • Footwell lighting - a surprise party for your feet
  • Rear foglights - to easily confuse people
  • Headlight aim control - blind your opponents
  • Rear sunshade - for those sunny days
  • BMW fire extinguisher - when things reall heat up
  • BMW emergency kit - in case she bites

If you need any other suggestions, let me know.

Search for "powered rear vent windows" on bimmerforums.com and you'll find the thread I made about them. There are pictures of the install process in the thread and even videos of them in action posted by a friend of mine.

I have. In a very sporty bmw i think they would be great, but my car is still mostly a cruiser, as even though i'm hoping for 200+rwhp, and the 3.38 shouldn't hurt, that still wont make it that quick.
Plus the belts are 400$, so its unlikely i ever go ahead with that.

The under hood light i'll almost definatly do.
-footwell lighting? I think i have footwell lighting. I'll check (haven't driven the car in 5 months)
-Blinding people wont be a problem, there will be 6 HID's pointing from the front of my car this season.
-rear fogs, i dont know. mabye. Lot of wiring for not a lot of practicality.
-sunshades belong on the 7
-bmw fire extinguisher: been looking for one
-bmw emergency kit: didn't think of that, but i like the idea, i'll buy one.

-I'm not a fan of vaders. I'm not even that much of a fatass anymore, but i'm about 6' even, 205lbs, and i can't seem to fit confortably in them. My sport seats are extra huggable

It's a handy thing to have, and as an added bonus the parts needed are very cheap.

I'm going to install one in my 325iS in case I should ever get stuck and have to poke around in the engine bay.

I think footwell lighting might have come in models years 1997 and later in Canada, but I know it wasn't available in the U.S. until model year 1999.

I'll show you them in action if you want.

I completely agree.

I did spring for the matching rear headrests though (and managed to find a mint set of black Amaretta headrests pulled from a 1994 M3 from Germany - pure luck).

Me too - hook me up if you find a vendor please! I came across one vendor in the U.S. who was bringing these in, but I forgot who it was.

Again, if you find a source please hook me up!

Why don't you reserve judgement on them until you go for a ride in my car and see how they feel?

I've driven a few m3's with vaders in them, i dont know. They're not terrible, but i'm a highway warrior at times.

My car already has rear headrests, i think all sport packages in 98 came with them.

Footwell lighting you may very well be right, i really have no idea

I saw the rear fogs on charlie's M, they definatly are a neat feature. But only early e36's in north america were wired for them (well, and you guys who have euro cars), so there would be a lot of extra wiring to run.

Thanks a lot for all your help!

I gotta get you to take me for a ride this summer though, if not to see what the vaders feel like, then to see what those throttle bodies are good for

propr'one,

Did you remove your clutch delay valve(CDV)? I found the clutch on my 98 328 took a little getting used to, coming from a 99 Miata. I plan on removing my CDV this spring to give my clutch a better feel.
